En Core designs was inspired by a box full of old cello pegs that were languishing in a drawer – unlikely to be reused, too beautiful to throw away.

These jewellery pieces were intended as parts of a whole. It is not until we see them on their own – the dark solidity and tactile curves of the cello peg, the uniquely quirky lines of the flute thumb key that we come to appreciate these parts in their own right.

The purpose of En Core is to find that unique quality in the unplayable, unused, broken and damaged relics of musical instruments. It is our mission to rebirth and breathe life back into these parts again. In doing so, we celebrate the joy of music and the artistry of repurposing. After the final finale for these instruments, we endeavour to bring them back again and to once over, create something beautiful.
